    Hello @massey1234   Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing.  Sorry what has happened.

    I know many of our community members have suffered at the hands of assessors. I am one. We are here to support you give you reassurance. Offer guidance, information and advice.

    One suggestion I have is to contact your MP might be worth doing or complain to ATOS.

    I do know some community members have sent correspondence and contacted their MPs. Add to that they need to know what is happening. Many of them have had positive feed back.  From there MPs might be worth a try.

    MPs are now being acutely aware of what is going on.

    Wish you the best in your tribunal. A positive outcome. Please if we can help and advise . Please ask.

    Hope that helps.

    Take care
